One important program we have in Tennessee is our Conquering CHD Care Kits. When away at the hospital for a procedure, families tend to have nothing but the basics: wallet/purse and phone. Our hospital kits are distributed to the families providing resources and support items to help bring comfort to the patient and their family during long term stays.


Some of the items we include in these care kits are:

  • Coloring books and 8 pack of crayons
  • Activity books and deck of cards
  • Books for all ages
  • Single-serve snacks (granola bars, crackers, etc.)
  • Gum or mints


You can help by purchasing care kit items from our Amazon Wish List.
